JULIAANDCLAYBOXSETGRAPHIC

The Seductive Nights Box Set will be at it’s lowest price ever as an introductory rate for the holidays at just $2.99, but this price will go up over the weekend following its release!

Message from Lauren:

I’m so thrilled that so many readers have fallen in love with Julia and Clay and the Seductive Nights series. I originally only intended to write one book, Night After Night, and then it became two with After This Night. As soon as I published that book last May, readers asked for even more! So I wrote One More Night, and it was such a joy to spend more time with this couple. I hope more readers have a chance to get to know their sexy love story, and that’s why I have packaged all three full-length novels starring Julia and Clay in one box set for the first time ever! Happy Holidays and may your nights be filled with pleasure!

When the sinfully handsome Clay Nichols walks into her bar in San Francisco, Julia Bell simply wants a break from the troubles that keep chasing her. They share one scorchingly hot night together, but discover a connection that runs deeper than mere chemistry….

-NIGHT AFTER NIGHT
With a dirty mind and a mouth to match, Clay Nichols is everything Julia never knew she wanted and exactly what she cannot have. He walked into her life one night and unlocked pleasure in her that she never knew was possible. Possessing her body, captivating her every thought. Which makes him way too dangerous for Julia to risk her heart, given that she has a price tag on her head. She ran after one mind-blowing week with him, but now he’s back, and determined to make her his own.

-AFTER THIS NIGHT
Clay Nichols can’t get the gorgeous and fiery Julia Bell out of his mind. He’s so drawn to her, and to the nights they shared, that she’s all he can focus on. But she’s playing hot and cold, and he wants all of her. When he finds her again at her sister’s wedding, they have a second chance but she’ll have to let him all the way in. And they’ll learn just how much more there is to the intense chemistry they share, and whether love can carry them well past the danger of her past and into a new future, after this night…

-ONE MORE NIGHT
Sexy bartender Julia Bell and hot-as-hell entertainment lawyer Clay thought their future was clear sailing. But life doesn’t work that way and the fiery lovers run into a slew of new challenges. Trouble looms in every corner on their trip to the city of sin. Can Clay save Julia from danger one more time? Or will he be too late for the woman he adores?

Pearls

Smexy Excerpt:

She tugged one end of the ribbon, letting the white satiny bow fall across the shiny wrapping paper. Ripping off the paper, she popped open the top of the box, and there it was. That glow in her eyes. The absolute joy in receiving gifts. She was a delight to give presents to because she never faked her appreciation. Reaching inside the box, she wrapped her fingers around the necklace then gently lifted the long strand of pearls. “Oh my God, they’re stunning. They’re so fucking gorgeous.”

She draped the pearls over her hand, the long strands like waterfalls of smooth, rounded beads. She gazed at them like they were precious, a fitting response, since they were. “They’re real,” she said, with wonder in her voice as she looked up at him.

He nodded. “I would never give you something fake.”

“I’ve never had pearls before. I’ve never thought of myself as a pearl person.”

“Then let me show you how I want you to wear them, so you can see how absolutely fucking sexy a pearl person can be,” he said, standing up and making his way to his suitcase. He opened one of the zipper compartments where he’d tucked a dress for her, and brought it over. “Another gift. Put this on.”

“Now?”

He nodded. “Yes. Model it for me.”

“As you wish,” she said, standing up and glancing once at the cockpit. “What about the pilot?”

“I told him we’d be making full use of the plane and he said he’d have his eyes on the sky the whole time.”

“Then keep your eyes on me,” she said, looping the strand around her neck, then stripping off her skirt, letting it pool at her feet, her gaze locked on him the whole time. He watched her, growing harder with each layer she removed—now her shirt, then her lacy bra. He reclined the spacious leather seat, taking in the show, savoring every second of her undressing. She stood before him in only her underwear, a small bit of sheer white covering her pussy, the evidence of her arousal
already starting to show as he caught a quick glimpse between her legs.

“There’s no need for the panties. Get rid of them now, Julia,” he told her in a rough voice.

She nodded, and stepped out of the panties.

Taking the silky dress from his hands, she tugged it on, and he shuddered, jealous of the fabric that now hugged her naked curves. She turned around, but kept looking at him, watching as he caught sight of the backless dress for the first time.

He drew a sharp breath, letting it fill his chest as the view of her bare skin fueled his desire. “Come here. I need to adjust those pearls,” he said, and she kneeled in front of him. In one quick move, he shifted the strand from her front, dangling between her breasts, to her back, so the pearls were a choker on her neck.

“Now sit on my lap, so I can admire you,” he said, and she rose, then positioned her sweet little ass on his thighs. He smoothed his hands over the soft skin of her back, his cock stiffening as she hitched in a breath at his touch. Unable to resist her breasts, he looped his hands around to cup them through the fabric, kneading and stroking until her nipples quickly turned to hard diamond points. She gasped, and arched her back, pressing her breasts further into his hands as if she needed the pressure, craved the touch. He played with her breasts until she was nearly panting, then returned his hands to her gorgeous back, and the trail of pearls that led down her spine. “I can’t decide if I want you to wear these while I fuck you or if I want to play with them while I’m fucking you,” he mused, as he fingered the pearls.

“How would you play with them?” she asked, and her voice sounded hot, wanton.

“Let’s find out.”

{Release Blitz} Nights With Him

Message from Lauren:

The Seductive Nights erotic romance series continues with a new
installment starring a new couple! While the first
four books in the series followed Julia and Clay, the next two will be
about Michelle and Jack, and can be read without having read the
earlier books. (Though, why wouldn’t you want to read about Clay and
Julia?!)

I can’t wait to introduce readers to Jack Sullivan. He’s sexy, broody,
witty, smart, and a little bit damaged and he’s also my favorite kind
of hero – the kind who wears a suit! Jack Sullivan is a sex toy mogul
and is the CEO of a high-end line of pleasure products – he’ll bring
all that experience to the bedroom as he sweeps Michelle Milo off her feet – expect many steamy encounters between these two! Michelle needs some good loving after all – readers know her already as Clay’s friend from Night After Night who loved him unrequited from afar. Now it’s finally her turn in the romance arena, and Jack will make sure she gets it good!!

Nights With Him Cover for Aug 13 reveal

ABOUT NIGHTS WITH HIM:

A sensual, sexy, standalone romance novel in the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Seductive Nights Series by Lauren Blakely…

Jack Sullivan is a Sex Toy Mogul.

An extremely eligible bachelor in New York, he’s the full package,right down to his full package. Hell, this man could be the model for one of the toys his company, Joy Delivered, peddles. Instead, he’s the powerful and successful CEO and he’s got commitment issues a mile-long after the tragic way his relationship with his fiance ended.

He’s looking for a way to erase the pain and that arrives in the form of Michelle Milo. From her pencil skirts to her high heels, she’s his perfect fantasy, especially since she has no idea who he is the night they meet at a hotel bar. He doesn’t have a clue either that she’s the brilliant psychologist his sister has arranged for him to see to help him get over his past. She’s simply the stunning woman he takes to bed that night and delivers many Os of joy too.

His touch helps her forget that other man.

When he shows up at her office door the next day, there’s no way in hell she’s going to treat him after they’ve slept together. Jack isn’t willing to let go of the first woman he’s felt anything for in years so he proposes a deal – share her nights with him for thirty days. At the end of one month of exquisite pleasure, they walk away, having helped each other move on from their haunted pasts.

But soon, all those nights threaten to turn into days as the lines between lust and matters of the heart start to blur. Can two people so terribly afraid of love truly fall head over heels?

**NIGHTS WITH HIM is a standalone full-length novel in the bestselling SEDUCTIVE NIGHTS series following the love affair of a new couple.**

{Meme} Top 10 Books I’ve Read So Far This Year

I have being reading other book bloggers’ Top Ten lists before for I even started my own blog/ However I have never attempted one til now. So here goes the first of many… I hope.

My top ten books that I’ve read so far this year will be based on their rating and not when I read them.

1) Beautiful Disaster (Beautiful 1)
I read this book last year and just had to read it again. There is nothing to fault with this novel. I think I just feel in love with it more the second time around.

2) Tangled (Tangled 1)
Male POV novel. Need I say more?

3) This Man (This Man 1)
The Lord is in the house.  This story had some strong theme, but I’m glad I saw it through

4) Deviant (Blood & Roses 1)
This is my first dark romance novel. Therefore I will always remember it.

5) Beg (Songs of Submission 1)
The introduction to a beautiful addiction and CD Reiss. Brilliant author.

6) Murder of Crows (The Others 2)
Everything Anne Bishop does is perfect. I just love the fantasy world that she creates. Nothing can beat them

7) What He Wants
My first M/M novel. Ya this was a bit of an eye opener. But it didn’t turn me off. The writing, characters and the story were so pure, that it only made me want to read more m/m novels. It really has opened me up to a new category.

8) Lick (Stage Dive 1)
When reading romance novel, I tend to lead towards the hero being a business man of some sort. But when I found out this was by an Aussie author, I just had to read. Glad I did. Will be reading the rest of the series.

9) Night After Night (Seductive Nights 1)
Addictive and pure bliss.

10) After This Night (Seductive Nights 2)
Even more addictive and more bliss.

Review

After reading the first book, I couldn’t wait to read this one and just had to read it one sitting. I was not disappointed at all. Loved everything and couldn’t be happier with the ending. Life and love is never easy and Clay and Julia have provided that in abundance. A must read.

{Review} Night After Night (Seductive Nights #1)

Night After Night (Seductive Nights, #1)Night After Night by Lauren Blakely

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Just wait a minute til my heart stops racing… Now it’s still going. There is nothing I hate about this book. I just loved everything about it. The characters are great, both main and sub and the story line was going places.

Clay is just as hot, if not even hotter than before. The man loves kink just because he can. Which is so refreshing, since most of the kinky lead males I have read previously have some issues that makes them that way. Not there is anything wrong with them, but sometimes a change is nice.

Warning there is a bit of a cliff hanger and you will have to read the next book to find out what happens.

Review

What a great start to this series. Loved every minute of it. I was into it so much that I never wanted it to end. A well written book is always too short for me. Clay is just perfect. He comes across as a real man; something that seems to be disappearing from today’s society. Yet I have a feeling that he could be hiding something really dark.
Will have to get on to the next book quick snap to find out.
